"Of all the digital timelapse shooters I know, I respect your work the most." Tom Lowe, Timescapes.
While working on the 'Salt' Project, Murray Fredericks began experimenting with digital time-lapse video using model early dslr cameras.
The resulting footage was used extensively throughout the documentary and contributed significantly to the film being awarded major prizes for Cinematography including the 'Golden Frog' at the Cameriamge Film Festival and AFI nominations.
Murray is continually working with new subjets and developing the technical side of the medium. His work is often produced in extreme locations (such as on the Greenland Icecap) at the limits of what the cameras are capable of capturing. The equipment and techniques used on each shoot are developed specifically to cope with the challenges of the particular location.
His time-lapse clients and credits include documentary film makers working in the Australian deserts, major brands such as Absolut Vodka, The City of Sydney - capturing massive events such as the New Years Eve Fireworks, Foxtel cable TV, and Architects wanting to demonstrate the way people interact with their designs. He is currently working with the Aurora, Icebergs and massive storms of East Greenland as part of the 'Nothing On Earth' Documentary Film Project currently in development with the ABC and Screen Australia.
The Time-lapse equipment includes an extensive kit of canon dslrs - up to nine cameras have been used simultaneously on a shoot. There are also two dedicated motion control time-lapse systems including the camBlock three-axis Dolly.http://www.camblock.com/
Supporting all of this equipment are various power systems (solar, generator and battery) designed for long-term use in remote locations.
